      Pretty disappointed they don't release a version that comes bundled with some free time for me to actually start learning Go
      Because, while it hasn't gained much traction, I have only heard good things about the language.

        It has gained quite a bit of traction (from what I see). Also - you can be productive in go pretty quickly (it's designed for new people to get up to speed quickly)

          It took me 2hours to learn enough go to convert a 500lines python web scraper to a 300lines go program in the following day. If you already have a week worth of programming in any other language you can take the tour at tour.golang.org and pretty much get by just with that.

            You can learn the syntax of pretty much any language within two hours (C/C++ included). It's the capabilities, APIs and 3rd party libraries that make it actually useful.

                Of course, that doesn't make the language bad (or good), it just makes it awkward in my eyes.

                  Uppercase names are used to make functions, methods and variables visible outside packages: https://golang.org/doc/effective_go.html#names

                  Also, see https://github.com/golang/go/wiki/Learn

                    And there I was, thinking this is meant to be less confusing. Oh well, I'll just have to try and see how it works for me.
